A skills programme is a set or cluster of unit standards gathered from a qualification, combined to form a short course with credits.

Skills programmes can culminate into a qualification when an interested learner continues to pursue the completion of the remaining unit standards. Training is offered by an accredited provider like OTBC and at the end of the programme the learner receives a statement of results and like a learnership, skills programmes are implemented by employers for both employed and unemployed learners.
